Green is my favourite colour and greens are my favourite foods, so wherever I can I try to eat them in as many diﬀerent, creative ways as possible. These green burgers are surprisingly ﬁlling and utterly tasty—so go green!
To make the green sauce, blend all the ingredients roughly in a food processor.
For the burgers, blanch the baby peas and baby fava beans in salted boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, then scoop out and put into iced water. Once cold, drain and set aside.
Blanch the spinach, basil and parsley together for 1 minute, then scoop out and put into iced water. Squeeze the cooked spinach and herbs with your hands to get rid of as much water as possible.
Put all the ingredients, except the egg and the coconut oil, into a food processor. Add the egg gradually while pulsing the mixture into a rough paste (not too smooth). Using your hands, form the mixture into 12 small rounds and ﬂatten each one slightly to form burgers.
Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a small, deep, non-stick frying pan—the oil should be approximately 1⁄8-inch deep. Working in batches, lay the green patties in the pan and lower the heat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Serve the green burgers with a little green salad and the green sauce.
